Yahoo! names the Top 5 Gadgets Worth the Wait

Yahoo! names the Top 5 Gadgets Worth the Wait
Yahoo! Finance has named their "Top 5 Gadgets Worth the Wait" for 2011. The much-anticipated BlackBerry Playbook has made number 4 on that list, thanks to its promises of competitive pricing, and its Adobe Flash capabilities. The Apple iPad 2 is number 5, thanks to its potential front-facing camera, lighter design, improved resolution, and a lower pricetag.

Other items on the list included the Google Chrome notebook in first place, the Nintendo 3DS in second place, and the Chevrolet Volt 2.0 in third place. It's no surprise that these items made the list, but what about the Verizon iPhone? Granted, the CDMA iPhone 4 isn't a 'new' product, but the years of anticipation have to count for something.

Are you looking forward to the iPad-killing (maybe) BlackBerry Playbook? If the PlayBook lives up to the hype, it could be a much-needed infusion of revenue and street-cred for RIM, that has been losing its cutting edge in the mobile market. Or are you an Apple Loyalist, holding out for the iPad 2?

Why is that Playbook getting so much attention there?, it's made by an rather unknown phone maker, and doesn't promise anything spectacular . :\

@RFXOR
In what planet do you live?
Blackberry is everything except unknown.
They can be losing market but you certainly cannot say they´re unknown.

1Ghz dual core processor, 1GB RAM, 3D graphics accelerator, support for HTML 5, Flash, for me these are great features!

All I have to say is you people that believe that Apple is everything dealing with the Ipad 1 or 2, will be crying soon to touch a Playbook... It's something that Apple can't touch! QNX is the High-Speed Train that will knock Apple off it's ass consider that it runs High Speed Trains, unlike some Female product that Apple calls it's tablet that can't handle Flash to save its life...
